A quick search of what Twelve Oaks Colored Vinegar was shows it was a distilled white vinegar product that was colored to resemble cider vinegar. The most common practice was to use caramel coloring and some apple jelly to reinforce the color and flavor of the distilled vinegar. Twelve Oaks is a defunct branding owned by the National Fruit Products Company, which now sells vinegar under the Whitehouse Foods label. But, they now sell a true cider vinegar and not an artificially colored distilled vinegar.
